Ode and Owed To The Man I Love

by Reese Turner

you rescued me when I was lost - 
that alone made you my hero! 
but, then your unconditional love 
pulled my troubles down to zero. 

my day begins with kind words 
from you, then your gentle touch, 
after which, you serve me food! 
I just love you, man, so much! 

you take me places I’ve not been; 
there you let me sniff and roam 
best of all, you later load me in   
our car, then you take me home! 

time rolls on and I know well 
we're in the autumn of our days. 
so I cherish more each hour of 
our cuddling, walks and plays. 

i've heard of a rainbow bridge 
i don't know if that is true... 
but, bridge or gate or Heaven's 
back door, I will wait for you!

Ode to You (yes, YOU!) contest entry

I'm Sissie, the man's dog. The woman who lives with us says that I'm spoiled and the man is useless. That's her opinion, but the truth is I work hard to keep the man happy and he works hard to keep me working and happy. And let me tell you, that man can scratch ears. And, loves to talk to me. He knows I understand. He makes me laugh. He bought a welcome mat for the door of our RV which says, "Caution! This dog can't hold it's licker." What a riot! He has three kinds of treats for me and my brother. Thirteen years ago, as I lay in that cage wondering if I would ever be rescued, I had no idea how good life would get! As that old song says, "It's so nice to have that man around the house!"
